    A couple of pieces on CNN about the shocking (to me) about face performed by the Bush administration. This was never about the science (big shock, I know) but was, instead, a sop to the GOP pro-life base (another shocker). Kudos to Sens. Hillary Clinton and Patty Murray for successfully playing hardball to get the OTC certification done.

    OK, Scott, you can start now in telling us how this is some great victory for Bush, Rove, and the GOP, as it’s going to rally the base. Of course, there have been so many recent such “victories,” that I fully expect a GOP turnout of 748% in November.

    UPDATE: Perhaps not. Will this be the event that finally pushes Bush’s approval ratings down into the 20s?

    Were you alluding to this recent WSJ piece?

    Joseph Moorecraft said in 1987, that the Reconstruction movement was made up of a small number but expected a massive acceleration in 25 to 30 years “when those kids that are now in Christian schools have graduated and taken their places in American society, and moved into places of influence and power.” (Frederick Clarkson, “Theocratic Dominionism Gains Influence”, The Public Eye, March and June 1994. )

    And Mr. Diebold has assured Rove that the GOP voter turnout, especially in Ohio, wil be 748%. Or any other percentage they would like.
